The 18-year-old from Madhubani, Bihar, born to teacher parents, was part of PW’s Yakeen NEET 2.0 2024 batch.  NEET UG 2024 is Tathagat’s third NEET attempt, after two drops in earlier years. He scored 611 in 2023 as he could not complete his exam. He took PW’s online classes to prepare for NEET 2024.


Expressing delight at his success, Tathagat said, “Last year’s score was disappointing for me but I never felt demotivated. I took to preparing at home with Physics Wallah’s (PW) online classes for this year’s NEET. My mother and father are both teachers, but I wanted to do something different and chose medical. My goal was to prepare for the test as much as I could and be ready for the examination. PW’s classes helped me with an integrated approach building my practice and confidence. And today, I can proudly say that online education can also get your AIR 1.”
